A good first, car, but costly if anything fails
I bought the car with 11 months left on the MOT.
Within a few weeks the clutch has almost completely failed, I caught this just in time before it messed up my gearbox, very costly.
Can't really comment on performance/reliability as with a bust clutch, I am using so much petrol it's stupid, so the car is spending considerable time outside the house.
Although before the clutch failed and I was able to drive it, I found it to be an easy car to drive that picked up quite well, as long as the engine had warmed up. Cold mornings give a problem with acceleration for a good mile or two.
The car is comfortable inside and quite spacious.
Although being 13 years old it's pretty basic, the seats are starting to get a bit uncomfortable.
Also there is no rev counter, engine temp gauge and the heaters take a while to warm up.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
